Review of Kashihara City Museum of Insects

Im not an insect enthusiast, but I was taken here as part of a tour. The butterfly greenhouse was the most interesting part; I also enjoyed the social interaction in making origami insects.

はっきり言ってかなり一般向けでは無いので、虫が嫌いな方はおススメ出来ません。
標本は少し古いのか色の発色が良く無いものもありましたが、生きてる昆虫に関しては中々良かったです。他に周りたい所があったのです一時間程しか滞在できませんでしたが、虫好きだと結構長くいられます。

生きた珍しい蝶々が沢山見られるのでかなりレアな場所です。個人的にはかなり楽しめましたが、珍しいゴキブリも展示してあるので、やはり...

橿原市昆虫館は石垣島で採集してきた蝶をを展示してくださっています。
関西地方では見られない綺麗な蝶がたくさんいます。手にとまってくれたりもします。

なんと今年の夏休みには、橿原昆虫館の方が石垣島で昆虫観察のツアーを企画してくださっています!!
3日間学芸員の方と一緒に昆虫採集ができるそうです!
すごいですね!
石垣島まで行けるのならぜひ参加してみたいものです。

          With a reputation almost as stellar as that of Kyoto, Nara is a must-visit for those searching for the remains of "traditional Japan." The largely green Nara city holds the majority of the prefecture’s treasures, such as the iconic Todai-ji Temple, in which a 15-meter tall Great Buddha sits, and Nara Park, where deer flock to befriend passersby. While mountains are by no means hard to come by in this area, for hiking with a reward, head to the Kii Mountains’ Yoshino district in spring, when the hillsides put on an impressive display of white and pink cherry blossoms.
